Elements of surface atmospheric electricity have never been used to solve problems of applied geophysics. A physical model representation of hydrogen, methane, radon, and elements of surface atmospheric electricity is constructed. Bubble formations of volatile gases capture from the depth of 4–6 m soil radon and carry it into the near-surface layers of the soil and atmosphere. The increase in the density of carrier gases over the ore body, oil field, fault zones, karst cavities leads to a fall in the atmospheric electric field and an increase in the polar air conductivities. The pumping of artesian water causes an increase in the atmospheric electric field. The injection of fluid into the ground leads to the reverse process—the fall of the atmospheric electric field.
